The cycle ride begins with a short ride to Gorai Jetty. After taking a ferry boat ride to the Island of Gorai, we enter the untouched portion of Mumbai, something we like to call the Islands of Mumbai.
We begin pedaling on roads enveloped by widespread lush mangrove. Our first stop on this pleasant ride is - The Global Vipassana Pagoda. Next, we head out to one of the most unique destinations on this ride - The Uttan Lighthouse. From the lighthouse, one grabs a panoramic sight of the beaches of Uttan, Gorai & Manori. The lighthouse also grants one grand sights of the vibrant and colourful fishing village of Uttan. There is so much to breathe in at this point of the ride.
To charge our bodies for the ride going forward, we stop by for a sumptuous Breakfast. Post breakfast, we move towards the rock face perimeter of Manori for a bit of adventurous off-roading/mountain biking . The sights from this vantage point are truly to die for. This is our little secret sport. We soon carry on our ride through Manori Village to reach unexplored Manori Beach. Once our hearts are filled with content, we ride back to the start point, and say goodbye to each other with memories of a lifetime.
